MPD and XMMS2 development started about the same time iirc, and the
two projects didn't know about eachother until a year later. Otherwise
it would probably have been one project instead.

There are efforts of writing a xmms2 client that shares music
(discussions with one of the daap projects, don't remember which)
based on what's inside the xmms2 medialibrary. This will naturally
support smart playlists and collections once that has been implemented
in the daemon.

With XMMS2 you can do _exactly_ that. Well, you'd be running multiple
daemons, but it's easy for a client to handle multiple connections.

Depends on how you look at it.

Just a quick response on irc to the thread:
[15:58:37][tru]: no, that they are talking about what xmms2 is already :P

But ok, I'm not going to discuss XMMS2 here any longer as it is also a
player and not just a medialibrary.
